Paris, Here I come!

I am so excited to be going to Paris this summer! I have never been to Europe. I hope to find some beautiful fabric or trim or buttons and see couture dresses and jackets and gowns. Any advice from my sewing friends about where to go, what to see, what to bring, what to buy, etc. would be so welcome. I am a travel rookie.

V1183 and my 30 year reunion

This weekend was my 30 year high school reunion.  The dress is my version of Kay Unger's V1183.  I used stretch cotton poplin from JoAnn's.  The center back seam is matched below the waist.  I hand stitched it with invisible thread.  My husband was so proud of me, he made it a point to announce to everyone at the after party (there were seven of us) that I made my dress.  What a guy!  Isn't he cute?
